Experienced Surgical Care
Our veterinary team in White Settlement perform a wide variety of surgical procedures, including soft tissue surgery, spay & neuter procedures, orthopedic surgeries and more.
We offer a broad range of surgical procedures for dogs and cats in the White Settlement area, using advanced surgical techniques and following stringent safety procedures.
During each surgery we perform, a dedicated member of our staff will administer anesthesia to your pet and continuously monitor them using patient monitoring equipment. We will also provide pain management.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priority following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We will always keep you informed about what the surgery we recommend entails and why we are suggesting it as a treatment option for your pet. We will also walk you through any special care your pet will require both before and after the procedure. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
Our vets at Frontier Veterinary Hospital routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal and skin disorders.
During Caesarean sections, we remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed with the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- Mass Removal
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. They can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
During a cystectomy, our vets remove a cat's or dog's urinary bladder.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
The Surgery Process
We know that bringing your pet in for surgery can be daunting or even frightening. But we want to assure you that we only recommend surgery for pets when it is in their best interests.
We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wear disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
